Describe, evaluate and discuss application of a nursing grand or mid-range theory.

The purpose of this assignment is to describe, evaluate and discuss application of a nursing grand or mid-range theory. I WOULD LIKE TO USE PENDER’S HEALTH PROMOTION THEORY!!!This assignment also provides the learner an opportunity to connect theory and research to nursing phenomena. Learners will develop a 6 or more pages paper (excluding the title page and references) using APA style to address the elements listed below. The paper should include headings and subheadings with the required info:

1.Theory/Author Name and Background

-Select a Grand or Mid-Range Theory that is appropriate to your practice setting.

-Describe the theorist’s background in detail and discuss how their experiences have impacted the theory development.

-Examine crucial references for the original and/or current work of the theorist and other authors writing about the selected theory.

-Identify the phenomenon of concern or problems addressed by the theory.

2.Theory Description

-Explain whether the theory uses deductive, inductive or retroductive reasoning. Provide evidence to support your conclusion.

-Describe the major concepts of the theory. How are they defined? (theoretically and/or operationally) Is the author consistent in the use of the concepts and other terms in the theory?

-Interpret how the concepts are defined. Implicitly or explicitly?

Examine the relationships (propositions) among the major concepts.

3.Evaluation

-Identify explicit and implicit assumptions (values/beliefs) underlying the theory. On what assumptions does the theory build?

-Examine if the theory has a description of the four metaparadigm concepts of nursing. If so, how are they explained in the theory? If the metapardigm is not explained, what elements do you see as relevant to the theory and why?

-Discuss the clarity of the theory. Did it have lucidness and consistency?

3.Application

-Examine how the theory would guide nursing actions.

-Describe specifically how you can use this theory in your area of nursing (Practice, Education, Informatics or Administration).

4. Conclusion

APA Style/Format 6th edition and plagiarism free (every paper gets scanned during upload for plagiarism)
